Everyone knows you can’t have a dream shop without at least SOME Rockler tools. How about the Rockler Pack Rack Plus? It’s a somewhat modular rolling rack for things like clamps, tools, and supplies. You can even add shelves to it. It rolls around your shop so you can have everything you need close at hand and neatly organized. You can even suspend your Wall-Mount Dust Collector on the inside with Rockler’s Dust Collector Bracket.
Need a stowable work surface? Check out Rockler’s Rock-Steady Folding Steel Stand. It’s an excellent choice for supporting router tables, T-track tables and other work surfaces wherever space is tight. Thick gauge steel, strong pivot points and anti-racking supports give the stand a weight capacity of up to 200 pounds. That’s like 6 Cremonas. When you’re done using it, just pull the pins, lift up on the table, and fold the legs for compact storage against a wall or transport to the job site.
